FOX WINS PREMIERE WEEK FOR FIRST TIME IN NETWORK'S HISTORY

Thanks to the strong series debuts of NEW GIRL and THE X FACTOR, the HELL'S KITCHEN season finale and solid premieres across all of its returning shows, FOX won the first week of the 2011-12 fall season -- the network's first-ever premiere week victory. FOX also ranked #1 among Adults 18-34 and Teens, dominating in those demographics by +45% and +77%, respectively.

Amidst heavy competition throughout the week, FOX was the only network to achieve year-over-year gains last week, raising its average rating by +31% in the core adult demo (3.4 vs. 2.6) and +28% in Total Viewers (8.4 Mil. vs. 6.5 Mil.). In addition, FOX was the only network to win three nights during premiere week (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday) - its most nightly wins ever during the first week of the season.

Key weekly highlights include:
